Jupiter can hold 1,000 Earths!
We can't imagine something so huge!
If it were a solid, like Earth and not a gas, like our sun, and we lived on it, the Gravity of it would crush us and we would splat like a pancake!
It almost became a Sun but did not have quite enough mass to create enough heat to start fusion of hydrogen to helium and so on.
It protects Us from incoming meteors, comets, and asteroids with it's tremendous Gravity it acts like a giant lint brush in our Solar System.
It is the Largest Planet.
Without it we would not be here.
The Moon acts like an anchor would do for a boat. Without it We would not be here. The creation of the Moon was a Fluke but that is another story.
The Sun is just the right distance from the Earth and is just the right mass to let us exist, yet another 5 billion years are only left before going Red Giant and destroying Us in the process.
Pretty cool huh!
Facts the Human Race must know!
